This artwork entitled ‘Tumultes’ is inspired by the impact of natural elements on our surrounding. How they affect us, our close environment and what happens when they meet.
It is a visual and a tactile piece that will add energy and warmth to an interior.
Painting with fibres results in wonderful natural movements. Drawing using free motion embroidery emphasizes the textural effects of this felted piece.
The contrast of strong and dark colours is accentuated by the vertical lines of the tread, giving a raised effect in some areas.
This art work has been made using the traditional technique of wet felting with merino wool and a little lacy fabric.
The free motion embroidery work was done with various coloured threads.
It is stretched over an approx. 2 cm deep edge wooden frame, and is very light.
The back in covered with a cotton backing and it is ready to hang.
52 cm W x 54cm H (20.4 inch. x 21.2 inch.)
